All society, it sometimes seems to me, is a continuing experiment to control adolescence. What we are _then_, where we go, who we see, what we read- well, I for one know that the prohibition against some things drove me in their direction faster than a supercharged '57 Chevy. Of course, since I did not even _know_ about homosexuality until I was well past adolescence (out of sight and totally out of mind...), it had no charm for me. Never had the chance. Different times.

What _are_ the verboten, the whispered, the clandestine, things these days? Hell, the Prez is getting blown at work.... What is _sex_ these days?

Kristy- is the ultimate subversion these days to be formless?

Is yin-yang now some lump of grey?

Albeit shiny, and new...?
